yep, and if they added IS to the 135, I'd pay $1300

All Canon prime lenses below 300mm show their ages and need to be updated.  My guess is that 135L II may comes with 'IS' but will be around $1400.  All L primes below 100mm probably still will not have 'IS'.

Personally I got 70-200L/2.8 IS II that do multiple functions including portrait so I will skip 135L and 85L (but will consider Sigma 85/1.4 if it updated in Arts series).  But pro portrait photog will still pickup L prime over zoom for attractive extreme shallower DOF, better bokeh and smoother and creamier background blur.  BTW, 70-200l/2.8 IS II is not that heavy if I just use it in fields from time to time but it's pretty heavy if I carry it and walk in a city entire day.  Under the same consideration I got 24-70L/2.8 II and will skip 24L, 35L and 50L but might get Sigma 35/1.4 later.  For my purposes, zoom are just more useful and versatile but will collect a few fast-aperture prime lenses down to the road.
